[image]Flooding along the River Gash in Sudan: Natural Hazards - NASA -- NASA Image Of The Day
This RADARSAT-1 image shows the aftermath of heavy flooding along the Gash River in the east African countries of Sudan and Eritrea (described by an alternate spelling, ''Erythrea,'' in the image). The rain-induced floods lasted from July 28 to August 21, 2003. At the flood's height, 79 percent of Kassala city, Sudan, was flooded, leaving 80 percent of the population homeless. The region also suffered heavy losses in agriculture...

The National Iceberg Center, which monitors sea ice in shipping lanes, christened the giant B10 in 1992. In 1995 B10 split into two pieces. Amazingly, the larger piece (B10A) was still the size of Rhode Island. By the summer of 1999 it had moved out of the isolated waters around Antarctica and near the Drake Passage, whic...

Remote, frigid, and often treacherous to traverse, Antarctica has always posed a challenge to the explorers and scientists who work there.

In November 2007, NASA, the U.S. Geological Survey, and the British Antarctic Survey jointly released a new image mosaic of Antarctica...
